Default Collateral Damage- My 70 Chevelle site build



To begin, I want to thank those of you who donated towards this build. I cannot tell you how much it meant to me, and the donations were the reason I was able to get started on this build. I also want to thank Charley for bringing me this car, to motivate me to work on a project of my own. He's a great friend.

This car has been decades in the making, going all the way back to high school in the early 70's. A friend of the family had ordered a 71 El Camino SS brand new with an optional custom color from Chevy. This was back in the day when you could do this. The color was a Cadillac special order called Nutmeg Firemist metallic. He went out of town for a couple weeks and left the car with me to drive. Cowl hood with black stripes, Cragar mags, black tonneau cover, I was in heaven. I've never forgotten that car and the rare color combo, and always wanted to do one for myself. I've added a pic below of the color on a Yenko Nova.



The plan will use a SPEC chassis from Roadster Shop, an LS forced induction build from Texas Speed, Magnum T56 from American Powertrain and as many parts as our supporting vendors can supply, and make this an official Lateral-G build. You can see the list of sponsoring vendors in my signature, please show your support. I'm working on getting pics of the parts as they arrive.

Today I finally got the car on the lift and will be stripping it down to see where I am. It's going to need a lot of sheet metal "love", but I'll let my painter Jim determine the extent. Hopefully he's in a good mood... I see little rust, but almost every panel has been damaged in the past. Here's a few pics of the car as-is.

I'm looking forward to seeing this start, I can't wait for more. Thanks for the trip down memory lane My father bought a new 70 Chevy Malibu goldwith a white vinyl top but with a white interior. It was what I learned to drive in. God I don't know how he didn't kill me with what I put him through with cars. lol

What's the plan for the engine? I assume this is what you are putting a Holley Dominator into?

427 cid LS, PRC heads, TSP intake, with a single Precision T7675 turbo. Not a max effort build, just something that will make good street power and be a lot of fun to drive.
